We were lucky enough to be taken here by a good friend for a late breakfast. They accommodated us even though they were very busy. The whole atmosphere is very Parisian. The service is outstanding and the food is a match. Fully recommend.

Had a delicious lunch which was a Spanish omelette and gorgeous chai tea with almond milk. Intimate place to meet a girlfriend and have a good natter supported by professional young staff. Fab and I will definitely be back and have already recommended.
